Here is the full statement from South London Warlords...

"It is with deep regret that we must announce that Salute 2020, due to be hosted by the South London Warlords wargames club at London Excel on Saturday 18th April 2020, is being postponed.

The Club committee has taken this decision following the recent change in Government advice and with the likely ongoing uncertainty in mind. We understand that this will impact on many people, and therefore, as you can imagine, this decision has not been taken lightly or easily: we have balanced all the great things about Salute with the health risks to traders, gamers and attendees. Salute will now take place on Saturday 17th April 2021.

We are in the process of contacting affected traders and gamers directly to discuss next steps.

All tickets bought so far will remain valid and we will reopen ticket sales nearer the time.

The South London Warlords remain committed to Salute, having hosted the show for over 45 years. With the support of our traders and attendees, Salute has become the biggest one-day independent wargame show in Europe and an important event within the wargamer's calendar: we are working hard to ensure in continues as such.

Most importantly we hope all you and yours remain safe in these challenging times."

So, it looks like they are simply going to be rolling over any tickets that have been bought for this show. Hopefully, this doesn't have too much of an adverse effect on the wargaming companies that would have been heading to Salute 2020 and we'll still get a chance to buy their goodies and support them!

Are you going to be keeping an eye out for which companies start-up Not-Salute promotions?
